The final and AA rated event #8 of the Matix/Sun Diego Pro/Am Surf Series was held over Memorial Day weekend May, 27-28, 2006 at Ocean Beach Pier, Ca. Surf was a really good 3-5ft. and peaky for the season ending comp. Competitors were kept in suspense for two whole weeks until the season ending awards banquet this past Saturday, June 10th at the La Jolla Brewhouse. Not only were the event results on the line but also the overall tour title and ratings cash award bonus.
Sean Marceron came on strong at the end of the year and his second place finish in event #8 was enough to catapult him to the 2006 Matix/Sun Diego Pro Tour Title. Shane Valiere was crowned the Adio Pro Junior Tour Champ and David Diaz took the Sobe-NoFear Airshow tour title.
